#1242052 How much more do you need to see?

Posted by hoboken16 on 26 January 2015 - 03:20 PM

Very long time soccer fan here, probably longer than most of you in this forum, born and raised in a country where soccer is everything. If there is anything that I have learned is that the more things change, the more they remain the same. And in circles we go around and around.

 

Good and bad club officers will come and go. Good and bad 'sporting directors' will come and go. Good and bad coaches will come and go. Good and bad players will come and go. Fans will come and go. For all those that leave, others will arrive.

 

Some generations will only know despair while others will only experience success, some a bit of both. At the end, most fans continue to follow whatever team is left.

 

What I also know is that memory plays tricks on us and we tend to yearn things from the past, and the further back we go, we tend to romanticize those memories when in reality it was not that peachy. As much as I don't like the current regime, I can recall that the prior one was its own shit show.

 

We might get a new ownership group, the 'right' group, and chances are that they will also screw up at some point and lose their focus and we will find ourselves in the same situation. This too my friends shall pass.

 

Cheers

Yeah and as I fan of the Nets since the 1970 and islanders since 1972 you can say that about a lot of franchises/clubs in multiple sports

Miazga has been with the U-20's and also with the U-23's




#1222074 350K in cap space

Posted by hoboken16 on 12 September 2014 - 11:54 AM

I agree with Juberish the new CBA will change things since  the cap could be going up a million for next year with the new TV money coming in.  Smaller increments in the following year

 

BWP's Option is already picked up for next season so unless he becomes a DP no new contract is needed.  I'm not sure why people are leaving Cahill out like it's a forgone conclusion




#1221964 WTF is the South Ward doing?

Posted by hoboken16 on 11 September 2014 - 05:25 PM

No. We can do a lot from our position as supporters as well. This response seems part of the problem. It's obvious that GSU is a MAJOR problem. How can you ignore this? It's right in your face. Tackle the issue head on.

I'm sorry when did I ignore or deny anything.   I would wait for the response but I already know the answer is never so don't bother

 

As someone (probably a few people) pointed out way too many egos to actually resolve anything




#1220948 Metro - KC Game Thread

Posted by hoboken16 on 01 September 2014 - 11:20 AM

Thanks doc but walking into a locker room is a lot better than being carried into the locker room and that was my point considering he was carried off the field.  Do you know what the injury was because I didn't see it yet. 




#1219651 RB vs. DC Away Bus Trip 8/31/14

Posted by hoboken16 on 21 August 2014 - 12:35 PM

I'm sure you can travel back separately as long as you let the bus captains know you are not coming back know about that you are not coming back. 




#1218141 2014-15 CONCACAF Champions League

Posted by hoboken16 on 07 August 2014 - 12:41 PM

I don't care how bad the other teams are, it's our region's champions league. It's important. This competition will only be as important as we make it. I personally care a lot about it. Especially since an American team hasn't won it yet. I don't care how bad the other teams are, it would mean a lot to me if we were the first American team to win the tournament. Plus, you can be as down as you want about it but you know deep down inside you would feel a great deal of pride at seeing our team in the Club World Cup.

 

 

 

 

ROAD TRIP !!!!!!!!

I think Arteta or Rosicky is more realistic than Gerrard




#1210748 Near the Break... Where things stand...

Posted by hoboken16 on 09 June 2014 - 07:58 PM

I think we should try to win the next game then try to win the game after that 




#1210740 Reason for our underperformance this season?

Posted by hoboken16 on 09 June 2014 - 05:25 PM

New England has continued with how they ended last season 

DC has gotten better

Toronto has gotten better

Chicago is a about the same

Columbus is a little better

Montreal has continued where they left off last year and that's not a good thing

Houston is about the same and they have had some injuries

Philly got better on paper but they have gotten it together yet

KC is about the same

We are about the same

 

If we score the PK against Montreal and that BS PK against us vs Colorado doesn't happen those 4 points would put us in 3rd place




#1205386 R.I.P. 80% of songs

Posted by hoboken16 on 17 April 2014 - 01:25 PM

It's a lot easier to use a large song arsenal when you have 50 to 100 members in the section that know all the songs.  It's a lot hard to go beyond the 6 songs when you have over 1000 and most are newer members who don't know all the songs.  Basically what I'm trying to say is that it's better to have everyone sings just 5 to 6 songs as opposed to 100 out of 1000 people singing 20 songs.

I can't speak for other SG but ESC has a separate forum and there are songs listed there with lyrics and MP3's of people singing them.  People have to make some effort    I rather roll with 100 people at 15-20 songs as opposed to 1000 who know 6 songs.

Define Championship run 

Supporters Shield - it will be tough to repeat but not impossible

MLS Cup - Anybody can get hot/lucky
